Bordeaux Left Bank

Château Figeac

La Grange Neuve de Figeac Saint- Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Not an easy vintage for anyone in bordeaux. This is very elegant and understated with this sophisticated blend of Merlot and the cabernets. Right bank meets left bank and is a good cross. One of the last vintages of the old regime at Figeac and highly recommended !! — a month ago

Etalon Rouge

Red Bordeaux Blend

2018 vintage. 100% Cabernet sauvignon grapes from a small vineyard in Blaye. First vintage vinified in the small winery in the town of Blaye by Clarissa Schaeffer and consultant Christian Prud'homme (Mouton Rothschild, Yquem) with "vinification intégrale". The result is spectacular. More density and complexity than any previous vintage, with perfect integration of the wood, impeccable balance and impressive length. Extremely hard to find (5000 bottles produced on average). The cult wine of Blaye. — 13 days ago

Château Certan De May De Certan

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1981

Gift to my brother on his 40th birthday. #pomerol can be beautiful and this bottle certainly was. Plenty of primary black fruit left, sous bois aromas. Wine is alive on the palate, interesting peppery note on first sip, bright acidity balanced by earthy fruit compote. Lovely wine which shows a well-made Right Bank Bordeaux can be delicious over time even in a supposedly off year like 1981. — a day ago

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Birthday wine. Was skeptical when I tasted right after I opened but with a few hours of air opened up beautifully. Tertiary notes of mushrooms, leather and tobacco but still plenty of fruit characteristics which makes me suspect this vintage will only continue to shine. Thankfully have 2 more bottles left — 14 days ago

Château Montrose

La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Merlot heavy blend from left bank. Had me worried at first - astringent notes and gritty tannins took an hour to air off. Dark - boysenberry and cassis with cedar. Smooth tannins and acid. Great with Kenjis smash burg for grill, but otherwise underwhelming. — 15 days ago

Château Peybonhomme-les Tours

Energies Red Bordeaux Blend

2019 vintage. Biodynamically farmed. Merlot 60 % and Malbec 40%. Aged in amphorae, no wood. Red berries, strawberries and flowers. Very fresh in the mouth, juicy and energetic (yes, the name is well-chosen). Has a light feel about it, even with 14% abv. Delicious. — 9 days ago

Château Coufran

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

This is a left bank done with over 80% of merlot and it shows. Still its a medoc wine and has all the tell tale soil notes together with some great and velvety tanins. Top stuff for the price point and they normally age really well. We liked it a great deal. — a month ago

Château Peyrabon

Cru Bourgeois Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Drinking excellently now. Plenty of aging left to go. Fresh and acidity despite the age. With nice complexity, depth and color due to age. Little sediment, which is also unusual given age. — a day ago

Château Rieussec

R Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Rieussec R de Rieussec Blanc Sec is a beautifully balanced, aromatic blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc varieties hailing from the Bordeaux region of France. 🇫🇷

It is a dry wine, but is produced partly from the same vines that produce this estate’s Sauternes. Château Rieussec is a Sauternes Premier Cru Classé according to the 1855 classification and was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) in 1984.

This wine has lovely complexity with exuberant notes of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, gardenia, orange and grapefruit peel, fresh peach, apricot, fresh herbs, bay leaf, and delicate minerality. It is medium bodied and has vibrant acidity. 👏👏👏

It was a delicious pairing with the halibut and fennel in a cream sauce with lemon, anise oil and steamed haricots verts. It held up to the rich, creamy flavors and contributed a light, bright, elevating dimension to the culinary experience.
